King Charles III led the procession carrying Elizabeth II's coffin to St. Giles Cathedral in Edinburgh on Monday.
Accompanied by his three siblings and dressed in military attire, the 73-year-old new monarch followed the hearse
on foot from Holyroodhouse Palace, in whose throne room he spent the night, to the nearby Church of Scotland temple.
His siblings Anne, 72, and Edward, 58, also wore uniforms. But not Andrew, 62, considered
Elizabeth II's "favorite son," but whom the monarch herself stripped of his military
honors months ago as a result of accusations of sexually assaulting a minor in the United States.
After a religious ceremony at Saint Giles Cathedral, on whose roof police snipers were
stationed, the first burning chapel will be opened, which will allow Scots to bid farewell to their monarch for 24 hours.
